News breaks on social media and if you're not following the specific outlet that first discovers the story, you're missing out. Furthermore, news media is biased by nature and by subscribing to a single source(as most of us do), you're putting on blinders.
What it does
Monocle scans, filters, and clusters social media data to fill you in without opening another tab. Our app pulls in social media data and clusters it into 6 main stories that are breaking at any given moment. These stories display tweets that have the highest confidence of relevance to that story and allow you to view everything people are saying on the topic.
How we built it
Our web app uses social media API's(currently only twitter but more to come) to pull social media data that can be used in our models.
